Incredible Elite France Limoges 1900's Hand Painted "Three Nudes Frolicking in A Grotto Pool" 12-7/8" Cobalt Vase
This superb vintage 1900 hand painted beauty came out of an estate in Frederick, Maryland some dozen years ago. At the time it was a lamp on a pedestal metal base and for quite awhile I kept it that way. It is such a beautiful hand painted piece with the rarest of topics, I had to return it to a Vase. The Vase drill hole was restored by one of the foremost restoration artist in the country.
The gorgeous cobalt Vase, which measures 12-7/8" tall, displays three Nude friends frolicking in a grotto pool. Look closely and you see two of the friends on a vine swing, while the third swings them. The extraordinary detail, colors, and presentation are first rate. The scenic Nude Vase is set against a cobalt background with two fancy looping handles....both accented with gold stenciling. The scene, itself, is outlined is heavy large raised gold beading.....while very heavy raised gold accenting goes across the top of the beaded scene. The cobalt backside also has heavy raised gold stenciling.....adding a richness to the over all appearance.
The Vase is in excellent over all condition and totally damage free. The gold is between excellent and pristine on the body of the Vase with one gold bead missing and minor gold rim wear. There is a small unglazed area within the neck of the inner Vase.
The Nude Vase has a wonderful presence and is fit for a special place of display within your home.
